Ilam Fields are not to be used for team sporting activities until further notice. During the national lockdown the need for isolation, physical distancing and restriction on gatherings is critical. It is crucial that New Zealanders stay home and break the chain of community transmission of COVID-19.

He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.
Due to the wet weather this week, Christchurch City Council (CCC) could not seal the middle section of the Uni-Cycle path on Ilam Fields as planned – see previous update published 31 March.
CCC is currently looking into carrying out the sealing work over the weekend.
In the meantime please take care when crossing Ilam Fields.
The Christchurch City Council is continuing construction work on the Uni-Cycle path on Ilam Fields.
Construction on the first section of the path, from Waimairi Road, has been completed and sealed. The middle section of the path is expected to be sealed by Wednesday (5 April) – weather dependent. In the meantime, work has started on the last section of the path between the tennis courts and Ilam Road.
Those travelling across Ilam fields should use the following routes.
- Travelling between Ilam and Dovedale
Use the route on the south side of the work site (see blue markings on the map below) – this joins up with the first section of the path that has been sealed from Waimairi Road.
- Travelling to University Hall
Use the route on the north side of the work site (see orange markings on the map below) – this joins up with the tennis courts.
Please take care when travelling through the area.
